Euro-Swiss Food Incorporated (ESFI) is a food manufacturing company established 33 years ago (in 1984) under the leadership and vision of the founder Werner Berger. ESFI is the pioneer in the local production of such a high-quality Swiss-German style of sausages and has supplied the needs of hotels, restaurants, gourmet shops, and selected supermarkets all over the country. The first brave and innovative step of ESFI made many heads turn towards it three decades ago.
The VISION was to introduce the quality and authenticity of Swiss-German processed meats such as sausages, cold cuts, hams, bacon, meatloaf, and other meat specialties to the Philippine food industry.
Since 1984, the original factory location was in Yakal Street in San Antonio Village, Makati. The Growing number of customers demanded larger production and thus a bigger factory. The new and state-of-the-art factory in Carmona, Cavite, was inaugurated in November 2016.
Adding to it, Swiss Master Butcher Hubert Weber has headed the ESFI production for the past 30 years. This modern facility situated on a total land area of 7000 sqm. uses HACCP to ensure food safety and quality, poses the ISO 22000 for Food Safety Management and is FDA LEED Certified (Silver Certification). LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most popular green building certifications worldwide. This is a testament to ESFI’s commitment to sustainability and responsible environmental best practices. Thus, proving that ESFI is not only a path maker in the Hospitality industry but environment friendly and food-quality conscious over a quarter-century.
For the retail segment, our processed meat products are marketed under the brand name Säntis Delicatessen.

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a systematic approach to identifying and controlling hazards (i.e. microbiological, chemical and physical hazards) to ensure the food safety of food. Euro-Swiss utilizes HACCP to assess hazards and establish control systems to focus on preventing contaminations from happening anywhere along the food supply chain.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building project types, from new construction to interior fit-outs and operation & maintenance, LEED provides a framework that project teams can apply to create healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.
